Ellen Page

'I Am Gay'

2/14/2014 8:37 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF



Ellen Page -- who hit Hollywood hard with "Juno" -- just came out in pretty spectacular fashion -- declaring she's gay and saying, "I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission."

The 26-year-old actress formally unveiled her sexuality at the HRC's Time to Thrive event, an LGBT conference designed to help the LGBT youth, saying, "I am here today because I am gay ... and because maybe I can make a difference."

Page said, "I suffered for years because I was scared to come out.  My spirit suffered, my mental health suffered and my relationships suffered.  And I'm standing here today, with all of you, on the other side of the pain."

Her next big film is "X-Men:  Days of Future Past."  Hollywood will embrace Ellen ... it will be interesting to see if studio big wigs will do the same.

Love her but really? Just live your life! Kind of over all the announcements, nothing shocks me anywhere, until they stop the planet to let me off just keep on keeping on!

Let us get ahead of Blue Ugly and call her a dyke and other horrible names. Myself, i always thought she was amazing. From Trailer Park Boys and onwards, hope all is well, Ms. Page!

I think people would only have been surprised if she came out and said she was straight.

If she'd just forsake perversion, she'd be going through a lot less pain.

I always thought she was a horrible actress.

Now, she is just going to be a horrible gay actress.
